Sainsbury’s Greenwich, London
Chetwood Associates (1999). Unlisted; COI granted
This unique eco-millennium store represented a complete re-think, with every aspect of the standard retail ‘shed’ re-assessed to maximise energy efficiency, minimise environmental impact and improve customer experience. It now looks set to be lost; planning consent has been granted for the building to be demolished and replaced by an IKEA ‘shed’ of the type the building so successfully challenged.
We supported a listing application by the original architect, but listing was refused and demolition is imminent.
